Gender Pay Gap Reporting as at April 2018
At Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care we have always been committed to treating our people equally and ensuring that everyone, irrespective of ethnicity, background or gender, can progress and develop in direct proportion to their individual talent, ability, diligence and commitment.
Our workforce of over 1,000 men and women, of whom we are very proud, is split 78% women to 22% men. The gender pay gap, however, simply shows the difference in the average hourly earnings of men and women regardless of their roles in a business. The gap is not caused by men and women being paid differently to do the same job, but rather by the inherent nature of the structure of a workforce working within the retail sector whereby many more women than men are employed in customer-facing roles within our stores.
I can confirm the data contained within this report is accurate.
